This week (which was really last week) the challenge was (to quote): “ Mine: Is there a place, object, or view that’s entirely yours, or you’re a bit selfish or possessive about? Is it a feeling you feel when you look at the photo, or perhaps an unwillingness to share?” This opens a real can of worms, don’t you think? Should I say I can’t think of a thing so you’ll think what a wonderful and unselfish person I am? Or should I show you the real me, who has so many things that almost fit this challenge? I’m guessing that you want to see the real me, and what would my post be without photos? Here are some interpretations of “mine”. First off here is a view of the Rio Grande Gorge that you see when driving from Santa Fe to Taos, New Mexico. It is always special. Even though I am possessive about the view, I am totally willing to share.
Something special that is mine – my parents. I do have to share them with my brother, but I don’t mind. He’s older than me, so technically he shares with me. Wow – that’s not something I say very often!
This last photo is a bit of a stretch on the theme. It’s my shadow. For those of you who don’t know me, I am actually as tall as I appear in this picture. Oh drat, you might not believe me if you just saw that photo with my parents. Didn’t think that out very well, did I?
